2021 MERCER LAKE SPRINTS/ISA CHAMPIONSHIPS
April 17-18, 2021

Updated 4/6/21

The 2021 Mercer Lake Sprints COVID Protection Plan is available.  Please note that while we are able to provide racing opportunities for the Junior Rowers, local authorities require that a condition of holding the event is that there are NO SPECTATORS.

Updated 3/26/21

We are still planning to hold the Mercer Sprints on April 17-18. We have a meeting with the Township on Tuesday, March 30 to discuss the COVID protocol and mitigation plan and an update will be posted then.

Updated 3/18/21

We are planning to hold the Mercer Lake Sprints this year on April 17-18. Effective March 19, 2021 interstate youth competition is allowed for a maximum of 50 participants (athletes and spectators). We will continue to follow strict protocols including wearing masks on land as well as social distancing. We will have specific race day protocols in place regarding use of launch and return docks, spacing out boat trailers and designating team areas. We strongly recommend a negative COVID test within 72 hours of arrival to the regatta. At this time, we are not planning on collecting this information from participants, however we do reserve the right to ask for documentation of a negative test (similar to the honor system for lightweight weigh-ins).

Registration for the event is open and will close on April 9 at which time PAYMENT AND LINEUPS ARE DUE. We will make a final call on holding the regatta on Friday, March 26.

We will update the Mercer Lake Sprints page on RegattaCentral as we have more information. Please feel free to reach out to Hilary Gehman or Kris Grudt with any questions.

*MERCER COUNTY PARK HAS ADOPTED A NO DRONE OR RADIO CONTROLLED AIRCRAFT POLICY.  NO DRONES OR RADIO CONTROLLED AIRCRAFT WILL BE ALLOWED AT ANY REGATTA HELD ON MERCER LAKE.
